Maths Intent:


Mathematics is an important foundation for helping us understand the world. We want all pupils to experience the enjoyment and power of mathematics and to develop a sense of curiosity about the subject. We want our children to know the purpose behind their learning and see the connections in their everyday life. This is achieved through exploration, clarification, practice and application over time. We believe all children can achieve in mathematics and foster a ‘We can all do maths!’ attitude.

We aim for all pupils to:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and model real-life scenarios.
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification, argument or proof using mathematical language.
  • Have an appreciation of number and number operations, which enables mental calculations and written procedures to be performed efficiently, fluently and accurately to be successful in mathematics.

Power Maths:


At Morton Trentside Primary, we have recently introduced Power Maths as a basis for our Maths lessons.  This is an exciting class mastery approach, which has been recommended by the DfE, that works for every child.  It is based upon the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.
